The Metropolitan King County (Wash.) Council is considering changing hours of operation at its transfer stations and landfill, prompting the local Teamsters union to warn that it could file an unfair labor practices complaint. The union said business hours and union members' related work schedules should be discussed in collective bargaining talks now underway. Ninety-seven percent of Teamsters members voted against the county's proposal to change work hours in an effort to cut costs at the solid waste utility. Cost-cutting measures have put the county at odds with local cities and solid waste workers.
